Albany County Helderberg-Hudson Rail Trail

The public recreational Albany County Helderberg-Hudson Rail Trail stretches nine miles along the old Delaware & Hudson (D&H) Railroad between the Port of Albany and Voorheesville.

The entire length of the Rail Trail, from Pearl Street in Albany to Grove Street in Voorheesville, is fully paved and open for public use during daylight hours.

The many benefits include:

  • Preservation of open space,
  • Community linkages,
  • Opportunities for physical fitness and outdoors enjoyment and
  • Increased property values for surrounding communities.
